Aftercare & Alumni

Getting through detox and rehab can be one of the biggest accomplishments in a person’s life, and in order to remain on the correct path and maintain sobriety it is important to have a plan in place for after rehab, and that is what is called an ‘aftercare plan’. 


Understanding the Disease of Addiction

What is the Purpose of Aftercare?

Attending rehab and undergoing detoxification and therapy is vital to recovering from an addiction, and in addition to treatment it is nearly just as important to have a plan in place for post-rehab. The primary goal of aftercare treatment is to prevent relapse. Some of what you will be able to find in aftercare includes learning about what triggers you and how to avoid or learn to endure being in an uncomfortable environment, coping with stressors and cravings that may come along the way, thinking through the outcome of a relapse, and preventing a lapse from turning into a relapse. There are many unpredictable twists and turns in life that people do not always plan for, and it is important to think ahead, understand this concept and prepare for cravings and future lapses to occur. A lapse does not have to mean a relapse. 

There are many different aftercare treatment programs out there, and some include participating in your treatment center’s alumni program, attending 12-step recovery meetings, staying in sober living for a certain period of time, reaching out to sponsors or other members of your sober support system, and individual, group and/or family counseling sessions. Aftercare is an ongoing treatment plan for a person who has successfully completed rehab, and it is meant to help in maintaining long-lasting sobriety.

    How to Know If Someone is Addicted?

    What Happens After I Complete Rehab?

    Achieving sobriety is a huge accomplishment, however addiction treatment is not over after successfully detoxing from drugs and alcohol. After completing rehab, it is important to seek aftercare services in California in order to maintain lasting sobriety. Aftercare programs are arguably just as crucial to a person’s recovery as rehab itself, especially in the early stages of recovery from an addiction. At this point, it is important to utilize the resources around you and receive recommendations to aftercare programs in California that will work best for you and your lifestyle. There are a number of different types of aftercare treatments, and some include outpatient treatment, brief stays at sober living homes, ongoing individual, group, or family counseling sessions as well as rehab alumni groups and sponsorship programs. Our drug rehab in Roseville makes lasting recovery a priority will never send patients back into the world without a discharge plan and connections to quality aftercare treatment. 

    Around 10% of the U.S. adult population struggles with substance abuse and addiction problems, and the relapse rates for those suffering is around 60%. Those who take advantage of aftercare experience significantly lower relapse rates than people who do not participate in aftercare treatment. Aftercare is therefore critical to maintaining lasting, life-long sobriety.

    The Necessity of aftercare

    The Benefits of Aftercare and Continued Treatment

    Although the timeline will vary for rehab or any type of formal addiction treatment, there will come a point where this phase of recovery will reach an end. Ongoing recovery efforts, however, encourage a person to continue these treatments while in their own environments. This is crucial to maintaining lasting sobriety, especially because the place it is most difficult to remain sober is back in the physical place where you were experiencing addiction in the first place. Aftercare and continued treatment will help in the adjustment period from exiting rehab to entering your previous environment, and this will help bridge the gap between living in a rehabilitation center and reintegrating into your previous daily life. 

    Aftercare treatment in California will provide a long-term treatment plan for a person who has struggled with an addiction to drugs or alcohol. The goals of aftercare include maintaining recovery from substance abuse, finding ways to prevent relapse, and to achieving a life filled with rewarding relationships and a sense of purpose and meaning. California Recovery Center is here to remind you that you are meant to lead a purposeful, fulfilled life that does not include drugs or alcohol.

    Aftercare Planning in California at Our California Recovery Center

    California Recovery Center seeks to create a healing environment where our patients feel motivated, supported and at home. It is important to us that after treating a patient at our facility, we go on to help prepare them for a future free from drug and alcohol addiction and to find a program that will allow each patient to continue the work we put in together. As we prepare each of our patients for re-integrating into society as sober individuals, we make sure to help connect our patients to the best aftercare treatment plan for them. The most effective aftercare treatment programs for those suffering from addiction will be tailored to the person’s individual needs and circumstances. Some patients who may be suffering from a more serious addiction may benefit from outpatient treatment plans, which require one-on-one therapy sessions, group counseling and meetings and specialized therapy and continued hands-on care. Other patients may benefit from a 12-step program such as Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, which offer supportive environments along with a feeling of camaraderie with people suffering from similar addictions. We feel that it depends on the patient and how they respond best to treatment, and therefore we help each patient on a case-by-case basis to find the aftercare program that works best for them to be able to achieve life-long sobriety.
